    I know this may be a technicality, but could the argue be made that, he was the best closer is baseball those years he was in the pen?
    Hey Chip&Smoltz,

    That's a good point and I've checked up on it. He just happens to run up against Eric Gagne in the only years that Gagne did anything as a closer. Talk about bad luck.

    Here are some stats:


    Gagne

    2002 82.3 Innings 1.97 ERA 192 ERA+ 52 Saves
    2003 82.3 Innings 1.20 ERA 335 ERA+ 55 Saves
    2004 82.3 Innings 2.19 ERA 187 ERA+ 45 Saves

    Smoltz

    2002 80.3 Innings 3.25 ERA 128 ERA+ 55 Saves
    2003 64.3 Innings 1.12 ERA 383 ERA+ 45 Saves
    2004 81.7 Innings 2.76 ERA 157 ERA+ 44 Saves
